Every form of drug release has its pros and cons. Fizzy vitamins are no exception. This is one of the best options for people who find it psychologically difficult to “sit on pills. A fizzy drink with a pleasant, usually citrus flavor can be perceived as an addition to the office lunch or a new taste experience. It is easy to drink, unlike large vitamin pills, which are often difficult to swallow. In this form, the vitamins are absorbed more quickly, which, however, is not so important, given that their effect does not require urgency. Gathering the rating of the best effervescent vitamins, the last thing we paid attention to the speed of absorption or action. This kind of medicine has a cumulative effect
From the disadvantages comes the relatively high cost of such funds. A pack of 10 to 15 fizzy pills costs about the same as a month’s course of similar drugs but in a more traditional form. If we talk about the impact on health – like any carbonated beverage, the solution formed by fizzy vitamins can irritate the stomach. This is a property of any drink with CO2 (which is why it is recommended that when drinking mineral water first let it “run out”). But few people consume “soda” systematically day after day to experience similar effects. However, vitamins by nature are designed for long courses of 1 – 2 months, and some experts believe that they should be taken continuously.
Some dentists claim that the citric acid in fizzy tablets destroys tooth enamel with continued use. But, on the other hand, the acid from such tablets is neutralized by baking soda – it is on the reaction of neutralization of acid and baking soda with the release of carbon dioxide that the principle of “fizz” is based. So there’s a chance that the dangers to your teeth are somewhat exaggerated. But if you’re worried about your enamel, you can drink the dissolved pill through a straw to minimise the possible damage to your teeth.
Offering our readers a rating of the best effervescent vitamins, we decided to divide them not by composition, but by situations in which a particular vitamin complex can bring maximum benefit.

The best vitamins for colds
Speaking of cold prevention, we usually think of immunomodulators such as echinacea, lemongrass or ginseng and vitamin C. We will not go into a detailed study of the effectiveness of these remedies – at least they are harmless if they do not violate the instructions for use) and we leave the readers, as adults and legally capable, to decide for themselves whether to use them. Let’s just note that Linus Pauling’s widely publicized opinion on the need for regular intake of 3 g. Ascorbic acid is not only unhealthy, but also dangerous. Recall that this no doubt respected scientist was a Nobel Prize winner in chemistry, not medicine.
Such high doses with constant use can provoke the development of urolithiasis in men, with regard to women, no such dependence has been found. Modern recommendations suggest taking 1 g during an acute viral infection. ascorbic acid. It will not prevent infection, but will speed up recovery, according to various studies – by 8 – 48%. And the most effective vitamin C in such situations acts in people with high physical load: athletes and manual workers.
Vitamin C M
tiVita 1000 mg
Domestic effervescent tablets contain 13 vitamins, 10 minerals and echinacea extract. It is worth noting that in addition to traditional effervescent tablets of water-soluble (group B, C) means contains fat-soluble A, D, E. From minerals it should be noted magnesium, selenium, chromium, iron. Iodine in the composition can be both an advantage – for residents of places where there is little of this substance in the water and soil – and a problem: in autoimmune thyroiditis or thyrotoxicosis iodine categorically can not be used.
The amount of vitamins in the tablet corresponds to the traditional recommended daily dosage, which, again, can be interpreted as an advantage for those who fear hypervitaminosis, and as a minus for those who are used to guided recommendations for optimal consumption (more about the different rates of vitamin intake below). So, in fact, there is not much ascorbic acid in it – but its small amount is compensated by minerals, actively involved in maintaining immunity, and echinacea.
Echinacea is known as an adaptogen and immunomodulator and in general this vitamin and mineral complex is recommended by the manufacturer for prevention and in the complex treatment of colds. The recommended course of treatment on the manufacturer’s website – 1 month, and there are 14 tablets in a pack, ie, two packs per course is not enough, three – a lot.
- contains Echinacea – immunomodulator and adaptogen;
- All fat-soluble vitamins are present.
- Can not be used by people with thyroid disorders;

Doppelgerz active vitamin C plus zinc

On the plus side, we should note a concise composition that minimizes possible contraindications. Of the disadvantages – a relatively low content of vitamin C.
- Fewer contraindications for a minimum number of components.
- Little vitamin C, compared to the amount recommended for colds.
The best fizzy vitamins “for every day”
As already mentioned, “fizzy” – not the most economical form of vitamins for the buyer. But if you don’t pay attention to the price of the pill, you can find among them complexes that can be taken over long courses to maintain vitamin and mineral balance in the body. They are presented in this section of the rating.
Effervescent tablets made in Belarus. Contains water-soluble B vitamins (B1, B2, B6, B12, nicotinamide, folic acid), A, E, C and trace elements: iron, copper, zinc, manganese, molybdenum, selenium, calcium, magnesium. The vitamin content corresponds to the traditional recommended daily dosages, which for some may be an advantage, but for those who prefer higher norms of optimal intake – a problem. Be that as it may, with a good composition of these effervescent vitamins have a very affordable price for 20 tablets in a package.
Contains a sweetener based on phenylalanine, so it is contraindicated for people with a hereditary intolerance of this substance.

French-made effervescent tablets contain 8 B vitamins (including folic acid and the vitamin-like substance biotin), ascorbic acid, calcium magnesium and zinc. Such a composition performs well under increased mental stress and in a situation of chronic stress.
It should be noted that the content of active substances in this product at first glance is excessively high – but in fact it corresponds to the norms of optimal consumption.
Recall that there are two approaches to the use of vitamins. The minimum recommended intake, or the recommended daily dose in the medical guides, is designed to prevent illnesses caused by lack of vitamins. They were available after World War II, when they were developed, but diseases caused by hypovitaminosis, such as scurvy, are a thing of the past in famine-free countries. And vitamin deficiencies are determined by a blood (or hair) test. The norms of optimum consumption are designed to maintain health, not as a lack of disease, but as a state of physical, mental and social well-being, and they are several times higher than the old ones – but that’s no reason to consider them “horse.
Berokka plus does not contain fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K).
- Wide range of B vitamins,
- There’s magnesium, calcium and selenium, which help combat stress.
- No fat-soluble vitamins.
- high price.
These effervescent tablets contain 12 vitamins (if you count the vitamin-like substance biotin as such) and 8 minerals: calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, copper, zinc, manganese, molybdenum. The manufacturer calls their pills “strong”, drawing the attention of their customers to their rather high dosages. Indeed, supporters of modern recommendations consider this an advantage, but those who fear an overdose for themselves will note the vitamin content as excessive. Just in case we remind our readers that it is impossible to overdose on water-soluble vitamins when taken orally, because the body reduces their absorption and speeds up excretion in case of excess. Overdose is possible only for fat-soluble vitamins A and D, but their amount in this product is lower than suggested by current clinical guidelines, so there is nothing to fear.
In addition, the vitamins have a fairly high price for only 10 pills in a tube.
- A wide range of vitamins and minerals.
The best effervescent vitamins for stress
The body’s need for B vitamins and magnesium increases in stressful situations. It is on this basis, and we have selected means for this section of the rating. By the way, they are also suitable for people with cardiovascular problems to maintain the body (but in no case for the treatment, which should prescribe a doctor).
In addition to traditional for this kind of complexes of vitamin B and magnesium contains coenzyme Q – a substance that actively participates in energy processes inside the cell and a powerful antioxidant. In addition, the product contains guarana extract – a source of caffeine that stimulates mental activity and performance. However, this is where the main disadvantage of this complex comes from: it is not recommended for people with high blood pressure. Of course, there are studies showing that caffeine with regular use ceases to act on arterial tone, preserving its nootropic properties, but in this situation unnecessary risks are not needed. In addition, it contains citrus bioflavonoids, which help maintain vascular health. Of minerals we should especially mention zinc, which helps not only to cope with stress. But also getting rid of cravings for overeating and sweets, and iron, hidden deficiency of which is half of the Russian women of childbearing age.
